Cleaning Your Leather Sofas

We would like to pass on some of our knowledge on how to keep your leather sofas clean, and looking like new.

General Cleaning Tips. For everyday care, and cleaning we recommend to use an upholstery shampoo, or leather cleaner. Do not use a dish washing, or laundry detergents. Do not scrub with a brush. Firstly gently vacuum your sofa, to lift all hairs, and dust. Then use a clean damp cloth, and apply with a soft leather cleaner; the cleaner used for leather sofas has a low Ph level, and will not harm your sofas. After you have completed the initial stages of cleaning, use a clean ‘dry’ cloth, and dry your sofas thoroughly before reuse. Make sure to dry your leather sofas in the shade.

Spot Cleaning. The following tips can be very useful, when cleaning your sofa after spills, when accidental stains can occur. Always treat spills and stains as quick as possible. Gently remove and soak up all the excess liquid, from the sofas surface. Do Not Scrub. The remaining liquid must then be treated with a cleaning agent suitable for the particular stain; for example if ink has been spilt, you will be required to use an ‘Ink away pen’, these can be purchased from the website. You must follow all instructions carefully. Do not panic if stains are not fully removed straight away, as in almost all cases you will have to repeat the procedure recommended.

We hope these cleaning tips for your Leather Sofas have been helpful. So regards from all of us at Furniture Lifestyle.
